Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner Withdraw Public Divorce Case


According to a report in the New York Post’s Page Six, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and former Congressman Anthony Weiner just dissolved their pending divorce case.

A court source reportedly told the New York Post that Abedin was originally scheduled to appear at the Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday. However, an attorney allegedly submitted paperwork on behalf of the couple to end the divorce proceedings.

The New York Post claims the judge said the divorce case was “discontinued.”

While it is theoretically possible that this means Abedin and Weiner may still remain married, the New York Post notes that it is also possible that they may be “negotiat[ing] their split privately.”

In fact, Abedin’s lawyer Charles Miller told the New York Post, “In order to ensure the proceedings have a minimal impact on their child, the parties have decided to attempt to reach a settlement swiftly and privately.”

Weiner, who is now a convicted sex offender, is currently serving a 21-month prison sentence after he pled guilty to sexting with a minor.

The Weiner email scandal hit the headlines again around the 2016 election. Former FBI Director James Comey reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use after confidential emails were found on Weiner’s laptop.

Abedin originally filed for divorce in May.
